: that part got their attention. alisyn: it did. that man joins us now live on the phone. good morning, bret. , good morning. >> bret, what had you so fired up at that town hall meeting? >> what had myself and many others fired up is what's going on with this bill and why they are pushing this bill through without even reading this thing. i'm sitting at home on my couch and talking with my family for the last couple months about what can we do about this? what can we do? there is nothing we can do but email our senators and congressman or what have you. and we decided it's time to stand up and get out to these town hall meetings. it's the only weapons we have. brian: bret, were you upset that your senator was at the table with democrats like max bachus with the senate finance committee trying to be at the table during this process and didn't walk away like senator hatch? >> no. that's not the issue that i have. i understand that you have to be in the room to know what's going on. what my problem is is that he said he would not vote for a bill or sign a bill the way it is presented right now.
